boats, when they struck somebody out on the bay, causing them to take in water. and that meant help from the coast guard. the boat was towed in, and the bachelor will certainly have a good story to tell. >> reporter: that is right, i'm smiling, because this was a good news story. now, this was a pretty serious situation, but the 22 people on board didn't know that. the passenger and the crew was out for a party, a bachelor's party, on a boat called the "neptune," you can see here the passengers have their life boats on, and that is good news. the san francisco fire chief said they got a distress call about 9:00 tonight, the boat taking on water 400 miles outside of pier 39. luckily, the san francisco coast guard got out there before the boat started to sink. the guest of honor, or should i

11:04 pm
officers in the oakland police department. today, dozens were referred for discipline, and termination for their handling of "occupy oakland" demonstrators. this comes after there is a look into a possible federal takeover. >> overall, i think it is good news. because it kind of shows that maybe opd is taking a step in the right direction. >> reporter: this iraqi war veteran is reacting to the report released by the police department. the report says that the chief is recommending that two officers be fired for using excessive force, and 42 others disciplined or suspended for their actions during "occupy oakland" protests. he was critically injured during a protest last october. he is suing the city of oakland. >> i went into this with a very skeptical mindset, and this is -- in some ways, proving that they are -- taking the right
11:05 pm
actions. >> the report says that rules were broken during the occupy protests on october 25th and november 2 last year, and on january 28 of this year. >> it never looks good, when the police don't follow the rules. we hold the public accountable to the laws, and therefore, the police department has to hold our own officers accountable to the r5ules here. >> the broken rules include acting inappropriately, using force, refusing to supply names. >> these officers never chose to go out and had to deal with occupy. it was indecision and lack of leadership that put us in that position, multiple times. >> you know, this went through their peers, went through a chief that is not an outsider, somebody who came up through the ranks of the police department and knows these men and women. happening now just south of

. half a century after a 93-year-old woman left san jose state university, she finally received the one thing she always wanted. her diploma. the story new at 11:00, and nbc is live at san jose state, so george, what was the hold up all
11:12 pm
these years? >> reporter: she was told she fell one course short of graduating. she never went back and said she was raising her family from that point on. but 53 years later, san jose decided to look back at her record and discovered indeed, she had enough credits to graduate. so right now, the 93-year-old is proudly holding her new diploma. she waited 53 years for this moment. 93-year-old olive chandler waited this long. for 20 years, starting in 1938, chandler was determined to get her degree in home economics. but life got in the way. marriage, children, giving birth forced her to delay her education. and in 1949, at the age of 40, when she thought she had enough
11:13 pm
to graduate, she was told she fell short, one course short. by that time, she had to raise her family. >> because i know how much she valued education, how hard she had worked. and i knew she had attempted several times to finish. >> reporter: that is why her youngest daughter, wanted to do something for chandler. she contacted san jose state, recognizing her mother's love for learning. san jose state reviewed her records and concluded she had enough to graduate. but instead of a letter, san jose state awarded her a diploma. a bachelor's degree in home economics, backdated to august 28th, 1959. >> it is just the thing to prove i did it. but you know, it doesn't -- i don't go out and get a job or -- >> i'm real excited. i -- it is just -- a recognition of everything that she has worked for, and everything that she has done for us, for her
11:14 pm
family. >> reporter: while earning a diploma can mean a better economic opportunity, for olive chandler it means so much more. >> and education always puts you in good stead. my education was used all through the times i raised the family. >> and she says she wants to thank san jose state and her family for making this all happen. we're live at san jose state. >> she is so wise, she could be teaching courses at san jose state, okay, george, thank you so much for that story. and it could virtually paralyze the nation, defense secretary leon panetta is warning americans of a growing threat, a cyber attack by iran. >> a collective result of these kinds of attacks could be a cyber pearl harbor. >> defense officials tell nbc news that iran was behind a recent series of attempts to disable the websites to several major u.s. banks.
11:15 pm
now those attacks failed. but another iranian attack nearly shut down a saudi arabia oil company, experts say that type of attack should be a warning to the u.s. >> we don't have that type of security in the financial sector, the oil and gas sector, any of our critical infrastructures. >> leon panetta says that the industry must do more to combat those types of threats. and tragedy on the tracks, we often hear about deadly accidents on our rails. in fact, there were two of them just last week. but how often is there trouble? we break down the numbers of accidents and deaths. >> reporter: we found that transit agencies spend millions every year to try to stop the tragedies. but the problem is not going away. in every one involved, from family members to those killed, to local motorists and
11:16 pm
commuters, are affected. >> they have it in my mind -- what they look like, what they're wearing. >> reporter: lasting images left in the mind of local engineer. >> they end up getting themselves killed. and there is nothing you can do. >> reporter: during his 30 year career, he has witnessed ten people dying on california tr k tracks. >> you never stop thinking of it. >> reporter: it is the reality at the helm of a job, on a train, and they're not the only one impacted. take this cal-train wreck, a man hit and killed by a 200 ton train, halting service for nearly an hour. the federal railroad administration tracks accidents happening on interstate rail lines. since 2004, nearly 900 people have died in california. about a 7th of those happening in the bay area. and this year, there were more
11:17 pm
deaths in california than in any other state in the nation. >> i think it has more to do with the relationship of the population to the train tracks. >> reporter: that is david raglan, from the traffic safety center, and he analyzes a decade of video, looking at situations such as this, like this driver, trying to outrun the train. >> we want to eliminate the possibility of violating the signal in the gate. >> reporter: he says even though our rails may run through highly populated barriers, more fencing could deter cars and people from getting on the rails. >> we should be able to keep our rails safe. >> reporter: the problem is not just interstate rail lines. we looked at our local commuter rails. since 2004, more than 200 people have died. capit capital corridor saw the most
11:18 pm
tragedies, bart had fewer, as well as muni, and there were fewer deaths involving the santa clara train. david ketrosky runs the capital corridor line and feels trespassing is their number one problem. >> you wouldn't play on the highway, you shouldn't play on the train tracks. >> reporter: and people deciding to end their life on the rails is also a big issue. >> i think unfortunately, we're dealing with a mental health societial issue. >> reporter: all but one of the deaths were ruled suicides, that is despite installing new fencing inside the tracks. and transit police issued nearly 750 citations in the last two years for trespassing. >> the bottom line is we can't stop somebody who is truly intent on putting themselves in harm's way. >> reporter: one spokesperson said he knows there is no easy
11:19 pm
solution. >> it is painful, painful to myself and for everybody that it has happened to. so you just have to pick up the pieces and you go on, and that is the way life is. >> reporter: and we discovered pda spent 15 million to improve their gates. capital quarter has shelled out 1.2 million. we have posted all the data on our website at nbcbayarea news. >> and if -- if you have a tip for us, send them to the unit at >> and more good news just in time for the weekend. >> we'll warm things up in the seven-day forecast. maybe 20 degrees, in the satellite picture we're tracking showers off to the north.
